comfortably that the decision that the pentagon made is a very good one. and i just like to sort of pick up on elaine's point about the role of the infantry. she is right in saying that aspects of the infantry is indeed to hunt and kill the enemy. but i would also say that 21st century warfare has changed. 21st century warfare in recent experience? iraq and afghanistan is about winning hearts and minds, and a big role of the infantry now is about working with the locals and the locals are not just men, they are women and little girls. and i think the dynamic that a woman brings to a unit that is out in these roles, working with the local population is absolutely key and vital. >> okay, okay. >> that's what the women are doing right now. that is what they are doing and we are proud of them. >> elaine, i want to know, how you answer -- >> i want to agree with that. >> i want to know how you answer women who feel able to fight along their male counter parts and i want it after the break. >> okay. well, there is.
